    I've just put the OEM footpegs back in place, before I had Kuryakin floorboards.
    I'll see tomorrow if I need to raise the brake pedal ... I'm 5.5" with feet 42 (European) 8.5 American.

    Brake pedal raised a little, so that my foot can stay under it while resting on the peg.

    Much better now

    Much better not only because the right foot has more room, but because the brake pedal is higher now and therefore I can apply more power to it. I can even lock the rear wheel now while riding

    Default Fix the rear brake lever

    Just did mine Saturday 12 Jan, I used a 3/4 inch pipe and bent it out and up... I thought it was only me, that the previous owner had droped the bike or bent it some how... Great to know I wasn't imagining that problem.

    Thank you for this thread!! I thought the previous owner installed a shorter pedal, glad to hear I'm not the only one with this problem. Doing mine as soon I get home!

    Default Adjusting the rear brake pedal back

    I heard that there are tines to allow for a rear brake pedal adjustment to bring the pedal closer to you....anyone know how to do that (pictures would be awesome if you can tell me how and what I need to do it)

    Its a spline shaft. Loosen the set screw, pull of the shaft, rotate it and replace back on shaft.

    What makes it difficult is the foot bracket.

    Real fan of the Rivco brake pedal. Puts it where it should be.

    Just use a old style smooth jawed pipe wrench, the jaws are right angle like the pipe wrench shown, but no teeth on them. But even with that I would use some sort of buffer as the action of bending the arm up puts the corners of the wrench jaws on the lever arm. And something hard enough to keep the jaw corners from digging into the brake arm.
